  • This POS still trying its bullying tactics while small businesses are migrating to Angie's List for honesty and integrity in review process. They won't "filter" or manipulate reviews, they won't hide or protect lying so everything is on the up and up. They are fair both for the consumers and small businesses. Honest small businesses are going to Angie's List for ads and to support an honest website. My small business that was extorted by Yelp placed an ad on Angie's list, paid a whole year's ad revenue just to support them. Looks like many others are doing the same and their revenue exploded. Looks like Yelp POS is down and having trouble getting back up with its lying manipulating ways.

    Whoever buys this company will have to face thousands of angry small business owners and employees screwed over by yelp's manipulation of the reviews and ratings. This is just the beginning of their fall. No one is going to touch this bad karma with a ten foot pole until it hits penny status.

    For all the speculators thinking that yelp has a future, realize the many small business owners who are yelp's potential customers are angry. Yet, yelp pretends that it can bully people around with their lawyers and continue their extortion tactics and ratings manipulation. There are a lot of people out there wanting yelp to die. And that will not be good for any business.

    I think it's fine if the poster's name is public, just like the company's. It's only fair to enable opinion if both sides can be held responsible for their actions. In all cases, the small businesses is often bashed with exaggerated lies from anonymous Yelper who is often pretty crazy and critical. You've seen these people before...those who don't get alone with anyone and you despise working with them. But when allowed on Yelp, they help Yelp extort honest businesses for advertising money. Yelp facilitates these by highlighting their posts and hiding MAJORITY of good reviews so the business's ratings are low. Worse yet, even though Yelp claims they are not responsible for the posts, they actively fight court orders to disclose the writers of these fake reviews because people will see the truth of Yelp reviews for what they are.

    I work for a business that had several fake reviews that Yelp refused to take down. Since the posts, our business had grown a lot because we took care of our customers a lot better than our competitors. Many customers went on Yelp to support our business but most of the positive reviews were filtered out. They are not Yelpers because our customers are older folks, so I guess their opinions don't count more than the yappy teenagers, therefore filtered away. Yelp has raised questions from some of our new customers who came to us, and they ended up a lot worse after they were mislead by the Yelp posts and went elsewhere. Do they deserve it, I don't know. We are so angered in our company that we have taken an advertising agreement with Angie's list. The At least the names are public and we are not afraid of true criticisms that would help us do better. But from crazy customers who lie with the intent to destroy my company, they deserve to be held responsible for their lies. Yet, yelp facilitates that lying, and actively protects their identity in court, while refusing to take responsibility for supporting these malicious behaviors.

    The problem is that you are starting from a very high flying PE that's supported by nothing by well painted fairy tale growth expectations. They have maxed out everything including forcing millions of iPhone users to click them while searching for a business on a map. Despite that, they are finding a slowdown. That should say something about their fundamental business appeal. People used to support them found the ratings to be manipulated lies. Small businesses (actual paying customers) are coerced to pay protection fees to Yelp or risk badly manipulated ratings with Yelp "filtering out" a majority of the legitimate positive ratings. Sooner or later, you will run out of people to blackmail and folks who are hurt are taking a stand against these losers. I was a Yelp elite until my company got false posts from our competitors. Yelp not only refused to remove the posts, they "filtered" out the legitimate positive reviews from customers who felt they wanted to right a wrong. Obviously, I am no longer writing for Yelp or clicking on this POS. Productive folks who make a good living can afford to go to restaurants and businesses to give reviews. These are the same folks who work in businesses that they found out are maliciously blackmailed by Yelp. It's not the money or the business, but the lack of right and wrong that angers honest folks. Now Yelp only can count on teenagers and forced clicks from iPhones for business.

    Whoever buys this piece of trash will have to face thousands of very angry small business owners intentionally hurt by this garbage company. It's bad karma. The kids running Yelp believe they can bully hard working mom and pop businesses into giving up their hard earned money to keep the hard earned reputation that took years to build, by allowing fake defamatory reviews while hiding legitimate positive ones. It will be a PR and relationship nightmare for whoever dumb enough to buy up Yelp. Yelp's got a lot more bad stuff coming for them. What comes around goes around...as they say.

    The problem is, that many of their Yelpers work for these businesses that are getting trashed. People figure out the scam quickly and stopped using Yelp cause it's coming back to them with bad karma.

    If they screwed their own potential customers with false ratings manipulated by their "filters" why would you think they feel "responsible" to anyone including their investors. The CEO dumped his POS shares on you already. Feel good holding the bag? Try being a mom and pop store having your livelihood and decades of hard earned reputation robbed from you. Not so bad for the investors now eh?

    This is the problem with the company, supported by folks who think it's right to "pay to have a favorable position" in life. Thousands of small businesses are extorted by this POS. Kids run this company don't realize that good businesses provide true values, not hurt others and extort them for payments. That's called a mafia. Mafias get hated and killed.

    This company is run by kids that don't realize that in order to be a successful business, it has to be a win-win situation. You don't badmouth, never mind intentionally hurt your potential customers by hiding good reviews and highlighting the bad reviews especially ones that are false. Then they protect the liars by refusing to release the information to court, yet still insist that the "writers" are the ones responsible for their language. They tried to bully and coerce mom and pop businesses into buying their ads or suffer "bad ratings" and negative behaviors from their customers. What kind of business except the Mafia does that? And mafias get killed. Yelp deserve this fall, and I look forward to see this POS going to penny stock status. No one is going to buy this POS if it meant that they will inherit all the residual bad karma and hatred from the thousands they have hurt. You don't hurt people intentionally to try to build your business. Maybe not for some, but this is where ethics will get a POS company like this. Yes, many small business owners were the ones supporting Yelp and writing on their sites, now turned off by the garbage they are doing.

  • Yelp is the biggest manipulator of their reviews. Thousands of small mom and pop businesses have been hurt by their manipulation of reviews that highlight the fake negative reviews left by their competitors and hide the real positive ones with their filter. They protect these irresponsible lying parties by refusing to disclose their identities. These are potential customers they are killing. Companies that do evil things, that harm and extort their potential customers generates bad karma. There are many many very angry people in every town and Yelp is getting what's coming.

    By being an arrogant #$%$ and screwing the mom and pop small businesses refusing to remove fake defamatory reviews and hiding good legitimate reviews to extort thousands of folks for ad revenue, the CEO and this dirty company have angered thousands of their potential customers. Yes they forced iPhone users to use their #$%$ company but bad karma is starting to kick in for these trashes. They have turned off so many potential customers with their "filters" it's made this an evil company. Yet, they arrogantly stand by their filters and protect those who write defamatory fake posts. Bad karma is starting to take its toll on this company. The CEO will get his down the road.
